About the Book

A HANDSOME SLIPCASE EDITION THAT CELEBRATES THE CENTENARY ANNIVERSARY OF ONE OF AUSTRALIA'S FAVOURITE CLASSICS

Never out of print since 1918, this centenary edition of The Magic Pudding will whet the appetite of a whole new generation of 'puddin' fanciers'!

Believing wholeheartedly that children prefer food to fairies, Norman Lindsay concocted a recipe for success that has delighted readers for a century.

The Magic Pudding follows the adventures of debonair young koala Bunyip Bluegum, sailor Bill Barnacle and penguin Sam Sawnoff - owners of the much-desired Magic Puddin' Albert - who try to outwit Possum and Wombat, the professional and extraordinarily persistent puddin'-thieves.

Norman Lindsay's unique combination of literary and artistic brilliance with quintessential Australian humour makes this book shine as brightly today as it did when it was first published.

This beautifully designed edition of a much-loved Australian classic also includes a fascinating biography of the revered artist, illustrator and author, Norman Lindsay.

A special centenary edition to treasure. Contains charming bonus Norman Lindsay print for you to frame!


PRAISE

'This is the funniest children's book ever written. I've been laughing at it for fifty years, and when I read it again this morning, I laughed as much as I ever did.' - Philip Pullman

'The book is full of songs that pitch along like boats on a rough sea. The tremendous black and white drawings are full of ne'er do well character ... It is an outrage that it is not on every English family's menu.' - The Observer
